LACONIA — Tommy Turkey, the official mascot of the annual Salvation Army Turkey Plunge, stopped by the Laconia headquarters of the Army recently to meet the new pastor and one of the new commanders, Captain Scott McNeil. Captain McNeil and his wife, Captain Nora McNeil, assumed the leadership of the Lakes Region Salvation Army mission earlier this summer. The McNeils replaced Captains Steven and Sally Warren who have transferred to the Concord office.
“I’ve heard great things about the annual Turkey Plunge and how generous the Lakes Region community is in supporting it” said Captain Scott McNeil. “Nora and I are looking forward to this year’s Plunge on November 22nd at Opechee Beach in Laconia and Nora, Tommy and I urge folks to be thinking of possible teams to enter into the Plunge," McNeil added.
Scott McNeil will be in the first team to Plunge representing the Salvation Army. In hopes of generating more teams for this year’s Plunge, the Turkey Plunge committee is offering Tommy Turkey to visit businesses, schools, civic clubs and other organizations to promote and explain the Turkey Plunge.
